Be careful with the Aqualine Bushke regulator.  It uses metric 
threading.  You will need an adaptor, hopfully Pet Warehouse will 
include one with your order.  I got one of these regulators  for 
Christmas the regulator I recieved was not the one pictured in the 
catalog or even the box the it came in.  You might want to look at a 
welding supply store, you can buy a better quality regulator and needle 
valve cheaper than what you will pay for that AB regulator.  Also if you 
have the room you might want to look into a 15# CO2 tank.  Many 
suppliers sell these for the same price you get a 5# for.  The reason 
being that the 15# is a much more standard size.

Hope this helps
